March started off with a bang! On March 6th, we hosted a Philosophy of Success Seminar where we discussed concentration and how to respond to failure. Our regular Gorsky Wednesday class followed with our favorite Rabbi, Rabbi Ephraim teaching us the laws of Purim and Megilat Esther. On the 7th, the Ladies First class featured our esteemed Rabbi Zitron who discussed Purim: The Happiness of Gratitude.
On March 12th, Rabbi G graced our weekly Leadership Fellowship to explore and examine our relationship with God more closely. The Grand Purim Bash for young, Gorsky professionals was a great success! Over 70 young, Gorsky professionals came to celebrate, mingle and eat at Davry Kosher Sports Bar in Brooklyn, NY. The following week, Rabbi G, again gave a speech at our weekly Leadership Fellowship and further expanded on the topic of having a relationship with God.
This Purim, we have truly seen a Nes Galuy – an open miracle. We saw an actual miracle in our days – President Trump recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Not only that, but President Donald Trump met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the following Monday to sign a presidential proclamation officially recognizing the Golan Heights as Israeli territory. A true Purim miracle!
Gorsky Wednesday brought Rabbi Ephraim in to decipher and delve deep into the Laws of Pesach so we can have an accurate understanding of everything that we need to do before this great holiday. The Ladies First class, taught by Rabbi Zitron, also discussed Pesach. His class was based on the Secrets of the Ten Plagues – where they explored the profound teachings of the Plague of Blood.
